Fast Write: Briefly describe the focus of the R&C course you are designing. Highlight some of the newest, most ambitious, or most interesting uses you hope to make of writing.
Groups: Trade overviews with two colleagues. Try to read their documents from the point of view of a first-year student on the first day of class. What else might you ask this teacher to tell you about:
- The kinds of writing you’ll do in this course?
- The reasons for doing this writing? ( That is, how does this work promise to be interesting or useful?)
- The pace and workload of the semester?
